Having studied in over 100 dojos past 40 years. I've found this dojo to be a dojo anyone should feel comfortable .like any physical activity having some level of risk. You will find none safer and more welcoming to beginners and newcomers alike. The head instructor is patient and kind , knowledgable of her craft. The regular group of students are more like a family as they make a point to not only practice regularly as well as socialize . Once you become a regular it has a family like atmosphere . If anyone has ever had nothing but a positive experience here, I can assure you. It was the person not making the best of it . Certain in no way a reflection of the welcoming and comfortable atmosphere I found the very first time I took a class. Just take things slow and listen to the instructors and senior students as they will always go above and beyond to help one adjust . Highly recommend for the beginner.

Kokikai aikido is a living martial art. The founder of the style, Shuji Maruyama, is still alive and still making significant innovations to the technqiue, which makes studying Kokikai an exciting and dynamic experience.

 

Boston Kokikai is a great dojo despite, or perhaps because of, its quirks. The dojo shares space with an after school program in the Mass Pike Towers, which means that students have to assemble and disassemble a classroom every night. But the location is co...

If you are my age you probably will never get into a fight but you still can slip and fall and with Kokikai Aikido you can learn the right way to fall so you do not a bad injury. Plus learn self defense and have a good work out and lots of fun doing it.

This dojo has a great dedicated instructor that puts her heart into teaching. So if you need a good fun work come join this class 4 nights a week in its Chinatown...

I had the pleasure in 2011 of finding this place and emailed sensei heather for the trial class.

I came in and all i truthfully wanted was to learn how to fight off an opponent.

After my first class, I wanted more, I was to no surprise as I have always been athletic, a natural. Although, I'd get frustrated when I couldn't put the Japanese term into the techniques, I came every class until I had a pressure point injury with learning a new technique. Now, as Ive read previous r...

Love this place! Took me awhile to get motivated , but i am so glad that I did. Not a pro by any means, but glad that I am on the path to self defense. Feeling an overall sense of confidence that is reinforced in my daily life.

 

Everyone here is great!

I went for the first time yesterday and I loved it! The instructor was friendly, greeted me, gave me clear instructions and the class itself was very friendly and supportive. There was plenty of repetition that I felt confident I understood what I was being taught. Now I've signed up for 6 weeks to keep enjoying it. I just wish the space was bigger.
